a little garden for a little gardener

I love working in the yard. I'm no pro, but am seriously coming to obsess our lovely backyard space. And I've always found something therapeutic about even pulling weeds.

Nowadays, with a tiny minion around, I have a second set of hands in the dirt. Jake loves to use his own gardening tools and help me outside. So I thought it was about time for him to have his own little flower garden. 

The idea went over pretty well, as you might can imagine.

We started with some small pots and Jake's six flower picks.
I added them to a nice metal basket {for easy moving} and created some little wooden labels.


For the labels, I painted the little wooden stakes black and stamped them with some white paint. 

He loved learning about all of the different flowers and what colors they would be. 
Every morning, we have to go out and give them each a little water and make sure to ask the sun to shine. 
{Because you need to talk to the sun to make sure it'll shine, of course...}

Tonight when I tucked him into bed, he told me that he was going to dream about pink and purple sweet peas. I'd say this little garden experiment is already quite the success!
